I've been having trouble lately remembering
which photos I've posted to Team Wet Dog. There's a lot of overlap between
this site and the Mount Pleasant work, so sometimes I stare at an image and
can't remember who has seen it or where I've put it. So if I post a
duplicate, well, forgive me.
About this picture: If you walk around in
downtown D.C., you don't find a whole lot of payphones. And when you do find
one, there's rarely anyone using it. Payphones are a dying thing, I think,
pretty much been left behind by cell phones. But in areas like Mount
Pleasant, however, not only are there many payphones but they're constantly
in use. A big chunk of Mount Pleasant doesn't use cell phones, and the local
shops sell a lot of international calling cards.
Happy Groundhog Day — we're in for another six
weeks of 68-degree winter.
